MGMAT math books are really good. You also get to practice their 6 CAT's if you buy any of their Math or verbal book. The Math test would be difficult but just keep practicing it and understand the concepts, you will improve your score for sure.

I am not sure how weak you are in Math. If you need to review the fundamentals you might want to start with Kaplan's Math Fundamentals book first.
I went through that book before I started the Manhattan GMAT books. That helped alot.

well let me paint this picture for you...
it takes me more than 25 sec to multiply / add / subtract n divide most of the 2 digit number(sometimes even single digit numbers).....that too by using my fingers to count..
Sometimes i dont know how they got the answer to a question in gmat even after reading the explanation...
so ,maybe now u can suggest me what books to read....
